Tis the season for all things squash and pumpkin. On the menu tonight? Butternut squash apple soup spiced with sweet, warming cinnamon. If you’re looking for an easy soup recipe this one is great for beginners.
My younger son loves this soup and I do too –sometimes I even eat it with a little protein (such as eggs or turkey) for breakfast.
Here are some notes on this recipe:
Squash is a very healthy, hearty, nutrient dense vegetable, full of carotenoids and other beneficial antioxidants. Further, it is thought that squash is both anti-inflammatory and helpful in regulating blood sugar.
In my house we love eating squash because of its delicious, sweet flavor, and are happy to reap the secondary (health) benefits. What is your favorite winter squash recipe?
